I remember my first son was like this too- I just don't remember how I got through it.
Atticus is 5 days old. My milk came in yesterday and he has been nursing really well from the very beginning. I think his latch is good, he's just a barracuda when it comes to sucking. It's not even that he's nursing all the time- it's just that he is so STRONG and the tips of my nipples hurt a lot and are breaking down a little. I've been pretty careful to make sure that he has enough of the nipple in his mouth so I don't think that's the problem. I would have thought that my nipples would be "hardier" this time around- it really hasn't been that long since I was nursing my first son.
Also- I noticed a little bump on the inside of his top lip that looks a little like a blister.
Any advice? Thanks in advance.
